From Sahl ibn Aa’d who said that Allâh’s Messenger (salAllâhu ‚alaihi wa’sallam) said:

„Jibreel came to me and said: O Muhammad! Live as you will for you must certainly die; love whom you will since you must certainly leave him; act as you will since you shall certainly be given due reward for it; know that the believers eminence is his standing in prayer during the night, and his honour is having sufficiency without dependency upon the people.“
